You will also find out why commercialization matters as we talk about the importance of creating mutually beneficial relationships between UNH, our innovators, industry partners and other collaborators, and research sponsors.

A primer on export controls will be presented by Victor Sosa, Director, Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA) & Melissa McGee, Compliance Officer.
